How can I retrieve computer id of my system in Labview, programatically.

What kind of ID are you looking for? Do you want the computer name or some kind of serial number? What OS are you using? The answer is likely to be OS specific.

Hi

I am looking for computer id which we also see in Licence manager.( 16 digit)

my os is windows.

Just call generateComputerID.exe from <Program Files>\National Instruments\Shared\License Manager\Bin\

with System Exec.vi and you will get it.

Along the same lines does anyone know how to get the docking station number out of windows?

I have a laptop that travels between 3 different docking stations.

Each has a different setup and I would like to differentiate between them so I can set them up accordingly.

Thanks,

If your docking stations equipped with network otuput, then you can differentiate them by MAC address.

If you will get different ID from NI Utility, then you can differentiate stations by ID as well.

Of course, you should store table with assotiations "who is who" somewhere on your laptop...

This is OS independant. Works on all systems. If a valid DNS setup is configured you get the machine name otherwise the IP number.
